And when they worshipped the Lord, they served also their own gods, according to the custom of the nations out of which they were brought to Samaria:
Unto this day they follow the old manner: they fear not the Lord, neither do they keep his ceremonies, and judgments, and law, and the commandment, which the Lord commanded the children of Jacob, whom he surnamed Israel:
With whom he made a covenant, and charged them, saying: You shall not fear strange gods, nor shall you adore them, nor worship them, nor sacrifice to them.
But the Lord, your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, with great power, and a stretched out arm, him shall you fear, and him shall you adore, and to him shall you sacrifice.
And the ceremonies, and judgments, and law, and the commandment, which he wrote for you, you shall observe to do them always: and you shall not fear strange gods.
And the covenant that he made with you, you shall not forget: neither shall ye worship strange Gods,
But fear the Lord, your God, and he shall deliver you out of the hand of all your enemies.
But they did not hearken to them, but did according to their old custom.
So these nations feared the Lord, but nevertheless served also their idols: their children also, and grandchildren, as their fathers did, so do they unto this day.
